Harry Hood – Twice As Good: The Celtic History Podcast

The Celtic Star recently announced the forthcoming publication of a new book, titled Harry Hood: Twice As Good. Written by club tour guide and author Matt Corr, the biography will detail the life of one Celtic’s greatest strikers of the modern era.

Mention the name Harry Hood and it evokes memories of a wonderful footballer in a glorious era, most notably at Celtic, his boyhood club. The chants rang out as he scored vital goals against the giants of European football under those massive lights in Glasgow’s east end, in the intensity of the city’s fierce derbies or major cup finals before six-figure crowds.

Skillful, intelligent and classy, with 125 goals and over 300 games for Celtic in the post-Lisbon era, where the Lions and Quality Street Gang merged with Jock Stein’s astute signings to keep the Hoops at the summit of European football; Hood was a key man in an incredible team.

Matt Corr appeared as a guest on The Celtic History Podcast this evening, on which he discussed Hood’s life, football career and business achievements, as well as reminiscing about the fantastic Celtic teams of the early 1970s. Matt shared some stories from Harry’s former teammates, such as Kenny Dalglish, and gave listeners a fascinating preview of the book.

The episode is not to be missed. It is available on various platforms such as Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Anchor FM; whilst you can also listen by clicking the icon below.
